Super Afternoon for Open Houses in Connecticut!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fran Rokicki Realty, LLC

Fran Rokicki Realty, LLC Mansfield Ct

Today was my open house on my Mansfield Center, Ct listing.  It was a beautiful, sunny day in Connecticut, high of 68 degrees.

You can see it on my VFlyer that is rolling to the right of my blog.  It is a beautiful home:)  I bought balloons 8:30 this morning at the Big Y, on I-195.  Then I tied them to my open signs that were placed at two intersections and on the sign in front of the property.  I believe in getting these things up and visable, long before I arrive.

The people started to arrive at 1:20pm.  No Realtors came to preview or visit.  However, several nice folks did stop in and take a look.  I particularly ask, where did you hear of this open house?  One was Realtor.com and the others came because of my signs.  Amazing, paper ad in our Hartford paper that is distributed throughout Connecticut and some areas of Massachusetts, no response.  You know I had to try it!  Paper ads are useless now, because of the internet.  At least I know that the signs still work!

I am hoping that people who could not make it today, will call me or their agent, if they have one.  It is not to be missed.  Many new improvements and upgrades in the last three years.  Some of the people who came today, have a home to sell.  So, they need to make a quick decision. You would think someone would snap it up! 

It's a Good Life!

We find people find our open houses through the signs with LOTS of balloons directing them and also from openhouse.com.

Glad you had a few people stop by - it is beautiful.

Do you put your Open Houses on Craigslist,Kajiji, or backpage.com?

These free ad sights work for me, and they generate lead.

If you go to Milwaukee and look under real estate services I put such ads as "BuyingVip..." "Buyer Agent Saves You" "Find out your Milwaukee or Waukesha Counties home value online".

These ad services area a great way to generate leads, and get people to register for open houses.

Frances I know that after your blog yesterday that you were probably hoping for some Realtors to stop by, but on the brighter side you got real customers instead :)

Tom, Yes, I have it on Craig's List and backpage.com. I like you ad ideas though!  Thanks for offering your help:)  I appreciate all the help I can get to sell this home.

George, True, I just don't know who is out there now, working and not working on weekends.  Most of the area agents, still do not work on weekends, so, I really wasn't expecting to see agents:)  Thanks for always commenting with a positive thought.   Are you doing Halloween popbys to the agents that use you?
